Janus Activating Kinase 2 (JAK2) is a 130 kDa tyrosine kinase involved in cytoplasmic signal transduction. Ligand binding to a variety of cell surface receptors (e.g., cytokine, growth factor, GPCRs) leads to an association of those receptors with JAK proteins, which are then activated via phosphorylation on tyrosines 1007 and 1008 in the kinase activation loop. Activated JAK proteins phosphorylate and activate STAT (signal transducers and activators of transcription) proteins, which then dimerize and translocate to the nucleus. Once in the nucleus, STAT proteins bind to DNA and modify the transcription of various genes, which can lead to various responses such as cell proliferation, cell survival and differentiation.
